CD Projekt Red has an early Christmas present for all Witcher fans. Yesterday, the Polish developer announced that anyone who owns The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and its two expansions will receive a free upgrade to The Witcher 3 GOTY Edition. The promotion is only open to those who own the game on GOG, but it?s still a nice gesture for loyal fans.
Get The Witcher 3 GOTY Edition Free on GOG!
?Why are we doing this? Because we can (and because we are always thinking of ways to make your life a bit easier)!? reads the official announcement.
If you are missing one of the expansion packs, CD Projekt also announced that they will be marked down 35 percent until Sunday. If you snap them up now, you?ll be entitled to the free Game of the Year Edition upgrade as well, so don?t miss out.
To those who already own the complete Witcher 3 package, the GOTY version should appear in your GOG library as a separate product automatically. CD Projekt says the process could take a couple of days, so be patient.
In terms of in-game content, there isn?t much difference between owning all three games separately vs. the GOTY version. The only advantage the latter has is the convenience of being able to install everything as a single comprehensive package.
The main draw of The Witcher 3 GOTY Edition are all the extra bonuses. The package comes stuffed with additional media like Soundtracks, HD Wallpapers, Digital Comics, and behind-the-scenes videos.
If you have yet to experience this epic game, now is the perfect time to do it. Between the Witcher 3, Hearts of Stone, and Blood and Wine, you?re looking at hundreds of hours of top-notch RPG action. So what are you waiting for? Get out there and start slaying some monsters.
